It's A Long Path...

One of the hardest things for me to cope with, and what i've been mostly ignoring for the past few weeks, is the knowledge that this is just the beginning of a long long journey and periods of long separation. I spent every day with my boyfriend, almost every night, for the past 4 months before he went off to basic. And now he's gone for training, and i miss him so much and can't wait to see him again! But then i remember that... i'll only get to see him for a week or two before he'll be gone again. And this is something that will continue and that i'll have to get used to. But i don't want to! I don't want him to have to keep leaving me! I know its selfish, but i just want him to stay with me. I miss him so much, I don't want to see him go again just when I got him back.

Every girl here knows what you are going through girly. :[ Your in one of the stages of grieving. With each day, things will get a little bit easier and easier for you. Things will, unfortunately, never be 100% easy, but you'll learn to go about your daily life. And, the good news is! It's easier once they are done with training. Feel free to message me anytime girly! I'm here to help you!

I know how you feel, I feel the same way. It's not fair, but it's something that we'll have to get used to...being away from the men we care about. It sucks:( And I keep telling myself, "You think this is hard, wait till he gets deployed for 15 months." I'll be a wreck whenever that happens...<br />
Praying for you though...we'll make it through this! We're strong girls, and not everyone can do our job of being army girlfriends!!
